Regulation of Private Healthcare Institutions

236. The Government will introduce a bill into the LegCo in the first half of this year to enhance the regulation of private healthcare institutions.

Voluntary Health Insurance Scheme

237. To encourage the use of private healthcare services by the public, the Government will implement the specific arrangements for the Voluntary Health Insurance Scheme to enhance the quality and transparency of individual hospital insurance products, and examine the details of providing tax deduction for the purchase of regulated health insurance products.

Electronic Health Record Sharing

238. The Electronic Health Record Sharing System was launched successfully last March to promote co-operation between the public and private sectors. It has been met with active support and participation of patients and healthcare personnel. The Government will commence work on the second stage, mainly including enhancement of the system’s core functions, stepping up security and privacy protection measures and further expansion of the scope of data sharing.
